Yup! I've done that quite a bit. I try to cover it most of the time because a couple times when it was uncovered and I got up in the middle of the night I spooked him by accident and he freaked out.
But yeah, if he's covered, he'll be very very quiet until I wake up, turn music on, uncover his cage, etc. He's very polite in that way.

It's not a good idea to leave them uncovered all night. Being covered up makes them relax at night and they get a much more restful night sleep. It also keeps out any sudden drafts.

I actually just keep them covered, but I use a sheet that will let light through when it's daylight. So they start making noise regardless but they still feel safe at night

Mine are always covered at night because they feel much more secure and it's a routine they expect now. It keeps any drafts out during the night. And I always leave a light on for them so that they don't have night frights. When I had tiels, now they used to wake me up covered or not.

I also cover mine at night. I have a cat and cats creep around at night. I don't want my keets to get scared if they should see the cat plus I think they are more relaxed and in a routine as well.
